Dermal Fillers (Voluma, Juvederm, Volbella, Beletero, Radiesse) restore mid-face volume and fill in moderate to severe facial lines.
How it Works
Dermal Fillers enhance facial features which have changed due to loss of elasticity and collagen. Fillers work by replacing your lost volume and by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Treated areas often include your midface, nasolabial folds, frown lines, chin lines, and lips. We utilize various fillers, depending upon your needs and desires. Visible results are immediate.
What to Expect
A topical numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated or 20-30 minutes. In addition, most fillers contain lidocaine to improve comfort as treatment progresses. You will see immediate results, with some mild discomfort. Depending upon the filler used, and your individual situation, results last between 4-18 months. If needed, subsequent treatment is carried out to maintain the desired effect. We ask patients to return in two weeks for a follow-up visit.
After Your Treatment
You should avoid undergoing dermal filler treatment two weeks prior to an upcoming special event, as there will be mild swelling and bruising. Ice and Arnica are applied to the treatment area to alleviate these symptoms. We advise against rubbing the area for the first few days. You should also avoid laser therapy and tanning for the first two weeks, and limit strenuous exercise for a few days.
